“What I am anxious to see in Christian believers is a beautiful paradox. I want to see in them the joy of finding God while at the same time they are blessedly pursuing Him. I want to see in them the great joy of having God yet always wanting Him.” A. W. Tozer

Sermon #9: If You Are Saved, What About Your Relatives?



"Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus. The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, 'We have found the Messiah' (that is, the Christ). And he brought him to Jesus." - John 1:40-42 (NIV)

If you are saved, you obviously are glad that you've passed from darkness to light, from death to life. You wouldn't want to abandon the way of the Lord because you know what it means to be saved. You also know what it means to be unsaved.

If you are saved, I give praise to God for you. 

But what about your parents, siblings and other relatives? They probably look down on you for worshiping God. Some may even hate you for it. But it doesn't matter; you know better - you are your brother's keeper, nonetheless!

The Bible says the first thing that Andrew did after hearing John speak about Jesus was to find his brother, Simon, not only to tell him about Jesus, but also, and more importantly, to bring him to the Lord!

Likewise tell your relatives about Jesus. Bring them to Him. Don't be selfish; this is a matter of life and death!
